Is your company prepared to act quickly in the event of an employee injury? Having an Emergency Response Safety Cart readily available at your facility is vital and could ultimately make the difference in helping save lives.
What is an Emergency Response Safety Cart?
Emergency Response Safety Carts are equipped with a Bloodborne Pathogen kit, a burn kit, two different size boxes of Safeskin purple nitrile gloves, two different size Class 3 deluxe hi-vis safety vest, an organic vapor respirator, beaded security ties, roll of barricade tape, four traffic cones, traffic cone bar, 20lb pail of Quicksorb along with a broom with dust pan for cleanup.
